I personally like receiving and giving gifts. Doesn't matter what day it is.

I like to eat, drink, and hang out.

I get to see people I haven't seen all year long.

Not a bad deal if you do not concern yourself with other people's beliefs.

I have to admit that you are a very cool guy Billy M. I really enjoyed to read your stuff in one previous thread and laughed this one.

Merry Christmas to you and for everybody! Letīs keep it Satanic as everything we do smile

My family and I don't celebrate Christmas. We just get together on whatever time we have off of work eat random food and give each other things that are needed/wanted. We don't decorate our houses or listen to music.

We aren't bitter about Christmas or are very much against it or anything. We simply just don't feel the need to celebrate it. My dad found it more logical to work over the holidays, get the extra money, then fly himself and mum to some exotic resort in January.

My best friend is Wiccan, my husband is Odinist and there is me the Satanist. Best friend and I just go back and forth to each others' houses and cook some elaborate meal each day. I'm vegetarian, but had to can that for the holiday (and I don't mind at all). I made 3 curry dishes so far, today was kangaroo meat in a Pakistani curry. Tomorrow she is making me steak with truffle red wine sauce. I have to come up with a recipe for ostrich for the day after. My husband just enjoys the hell out of it because he loves food no matter what format it comes in.

I don't get offended by people saying Merry Christmas. If they say it I just wish them a Happy Holiday, Husband wishes them a Happy Solstice. No one gets offended by our responses.

I don't like when holidays tie into a religion, it would be just as unfair if Hanukkah was the new Christmas and everyone is expected to celebrate it. I don't go out of my way to convince people that I'm an Atheist when someone says Merry Christmas. I actually go out of my way to say it to customers or Happy Holidays.
These are social traditions that bring people together, and I don't think there is anything negative or wrong about that.
I love getting presents every year, but my greatest gift is my well-being and my family's as well.
You can consider that a very Christian thing to think like that, but I don't need to be please or avoid punishment from a deity to think like this.

Misanthropichero, that's nice Christmas-celebrating! I got your point. I actually reviewed my opinion about this event and from now on I will just skip that religious part and gonna make Christmas sinful and enjoy it in the most Satanic way.

I hope everybody will enjoy this Xmas in a way you would like to have it. Thank you for your responses, once again, I got a bit wiser after our conversation and I'm damned happy about it.

I wish you all a Satanic Christmas!

Hail Satan!

Interestingly enough, holiday = holy day, and these were always associated with, even created by, people with various religious belief systems.

But, like you said, there are so many positive things about these holidays that we end up enjoying them anyway (thanks to all of those family members who instituted the traditions we so enjoy today)! smile

Merry Christmas!
Happy Hanukkah!
Happy Yule Season!
Happy New Year!
(what'd I miss?)

Different strokes for different folks -

If there were a shuttle-rocket into outer space this time of the year I would be the first on line. I deplore Xmass and most everything that goes with it. This includes the music, decorations, the commercialism and especially the family gatherings pigging out boozing it up and going broke, spending money they don’t have on shit that no one wants to begin with. Who in turn wind up spending the rest of the following year paying high interest rates on their maxed out credit cards... Not to mention the ass-wipes pushing all this consumerism have little or in most cases nothing to do with the Xtian religion to begin with. The mass produced over-priced crappy products sold to the gullible masses at Wal-Mart and the and so on can eat my dust!

I am not a hard-core atheist, I know Xmass trees have nothing to do with the xtian religion. Nativities are for retards. Jesus doesn’t love you -

Can I get a Bah-humbug!

I've noticed that Diabologue doesn't fully load in Internet Explorer (I only get the top banner but none of the content). Though, perhaps not surprisingly considering Magister Paradise's well known technology preferences, it works fine in Firefox.

From what I can tell, this only seems to be an issue with Diabologue and his other sites (Main Purging Talon, Terror Transmission) seem to work well in both browsers.
